Suquet Hill offers unparalleled panoramas of Cannes, and Musée de la Castre offers a bit of historic and cultural education for those interested.Find out more about Le Vieux
The Town Center Cannes is a high profile, luxury shopping and entertainment hub if there ever was one.

And when it comes to nightlife, this is where it all begins: first a drink at one of the pubs, than go down to La Croissette for the best nightclubs in town.Find out more about Town Centre
